William Michael Hanlon, Sr. passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family in his home on Monday, March 2, 2020. Born August 16, 1944, in White Plains, New York, Michael grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he graduated from University High and then LSU. He married his wife of 51 years, Diane Todd, and moved to Tallulah, Louisiana where he spent his career in the agricultural-business industry.


Michaelís greatest joy came from being the loving father of his son, Michael, and wife, Amy, and his daughter, Missy Hanlon Parker, and her husband, Randy. He was the proud grandfather of Bradley and Steven Hanlon and John Michael, Hanlon, and Allen Parker.


Michael was actively involved in the community as a former president of the Tallulah Academy Booster Club and Tallulah Country Club and overall by readily offering a helping hand whenever he was called upon. Widely known and greatly loved for his genuine friendliness, his fun-loving, easy going spirit, and his ever-present smile, Michael will be greatly missed by his many friends.


Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas Joseph and Rose C. Hanlon. In addition to his immediate family, he is survived by his sister, Eugenie Ogden, his mother-in-law, Dena Todd, his sister and brothers-in-law who were close to his heart and a host of beloved nieces and nephews.


Honorary pallbearers are Freddy Gaumintz, Pat Patrick, Lee Oliver, Dalton Fortenberry, Nap Book, and Teddy Oliver.


The family would like to express their deep appreciation to Dr. Mike Cage for his years of dedicated care.


In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Trinity Episcopal Church in Tallulah, Louisiana.
